Stoumen has made a natural sparkling wine or a premium patisserie. I lean towards the former description, if only because I like this wine and I am a traditionalist. It has the weight and doneness of a traditional dumpling, with flavors of lemon curd, purple apple and cardamom. Its natural wine pedigree manifests itself in somewhat hazy color and wine characteristics that emerge above the finish, especially as the wine warms. Far from wine, it adds complexity. It may not have shaken my world, but it changed my perspective a bit.
